This is a double IPA that is true to the style. Deep amber/clear color with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus, hemp, hop resin and pine. The hops come through and fill your palate with the bitter smooth flavor you expect from a double. This is a well balanced hop lovers beer and one of my go to brews.

Pretty hoppy aroma with some light citrus. Flavor is thin and slightly piney. Had a draft at aria in vegas. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (8444) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Clear deep golden with a large sticky foamy white head. Big earthy grassy resin nose with a dose of bitter citrus pith and pale British malt. Smooth flavor that starts bitter and pithy and floral and dank, with a pale British malt and cereal grainy wave of malt to the finish. Slightly more cerealish toward the end than I would expect but its balanced by this resinous floral and slightly piney bitterness. Really nice and bold.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
A lightly hazed golden amber DIPA with a thick frothy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, light caramel malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light tropical fruits, treacle, nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light vinous notes, treacle, light butterscotch, resinous and piney hops, light pink grapefruit, pleasant.

Bottle. Amber gold in colour. Good off-white head. Very Fruity; very orange citrus, orange marmalade, some tropical fruit. Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Malty; sweet malts, caramel. Nice fruit/hop/malt balance. Sweet orange citrus fruity and caramel malty throughout. Increasing bitterness into a dry hoppy finish. Nice DIPA! (2014-09-12)

Pre-pour thoughts. Message under bottle cap reads. "GOOD for what ALES you". Heh heh, thats good. Tonights occasion is, I hate my job, and I can barely bear the thought of going in tomorrow. So if theres a genie in this bottle, I wish for a new job.

Pours a copper orange color. Not very clear, some fine particulatesin there. About one finger cream colored head. Medium head longevity. Good lacing, okay retention.

Aroma is a malt bonanza. Wow. Toasted barley, light pine, light citrus. Caramel. Earthy hops. Its a little different than what I was expecting. That pine thing, its more of a pine bark....

Taste is leaning sweet. A little pine resin. Caramel, light orange zest. Honey and toast. Meh. Its hoppy, but its more earthy or floral.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. Its not real bitter, I guess thanks to the earthy hops. So the drinkability is pretty high. It is dry, smooth. Hides the alcohol well. Not too carbonated. Yeah....

Overall, its pretty good. Im not super impressed. But then again, Im not disappointed either. Earthy hops are interesting. Id probably buy it again. Id probably recommend it also. I guess Ill have to wait till morning to see if my wish was granted.

valpoaj (741) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle pour - orange/copper color with a frothy white head. Aroma is generally citrus hops with a solid dose of sweet malts, some breadiness and booze. Flavor is very malt forward for an IIPA - theres some good bitterness mixed in, but this is a safe one if youre not a hop-forward person. Healthy dose of sweetness and booziness mixed in - not surprised to see 9% on this, as it drinks like it is high ABV. Palate is medium bodied - mild carbonation. Good brew, but not if Im looking for a bit more bite...

gururyan (721) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Poured from can into snifter, clear deep amber red, off white head, subtle aroma. Probably a better bet IPA for those that don't like a biting hop mouthfeel. Subtle caramel finish. I should add that this beer is rather inconsistent and seems quite temperamental to temperature and handling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. BB 12/22/16. (HyVee) Dubuque, IA.
Clear deep golden color with a bubbly white head. Deep sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and caramel malt in the aroma. The flavor is sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness, alcohol and caramel malt. Alcohol warms.
